Pain In The Groin During Early Pregnancy?
I asked if I was only 12 weeks pregnant, but why does the groin ache and it hurts to take the road. How about a solution. And the dangers are not sorted out. Because neighbors and friends suggested to do massage, but I was still uncertain because I was afraid what would happen to my fetus.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
During pregnancy, your body will experience a series of hormonal changes that can trigger a variety of complaints, including body aches (one of which is pain around the groin). These complaints are generally the heaviest felt at a young gestational age (trimester 1) and nearing labor (trimester 3). The urgency of pregnancy, which increases in size, causing back blood flow from the lower leg to the heart to become less smooth, can also trigger pain around the legs to the groin. In general, pain in the groin that is mild in intensity, relieves with rest, and without other complaints is not dangerous.
Not only that, but it can also be pain in the groin when pregnant occurs due to other triggers, for example:
Contractions (at 20 weeks gestation, contractions that are strong enough to potentially trigger a miscarriage) Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus) Urinary tract infections, more prone to occur in pregnant women due to changes in the normal flora in the vagina Bladder stones Post herpetic neuralgia Ovarian cysts (sacs) fluid filled in the ovaries) Nerve pinching Lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes), often associated with tuberculosis infection, infections around the pelvis, abdomen, or legs Hernia (sticking intestine due to weakening of the abdominal wall) Irritant contact dermatitis Skin infections, for example due to folliculitis , shingles, psychosomatic disorders, and so on. That's right, you shouldn't just massage the painful groin. Because, not only has the potential to harm the health of your fetus, massage without being based on adequate knowledge of body anatomy can also make the pain you feel worse.
Given your condition who is pregnant, you should not rush to take the drug. You can first compress the painful groin with warm water to deal with pain. Always wear pants that are comfortable and not tight. Limit activities that involve excessive groin movement. Get enough rest and stay away from excessive stress. Furthermore, get your condition checked directly to a doctor or obstetrician to get adequate treatment.
I hope this helps.
